Carson City School board to address plan for return to school


The Carson City School Board of Trustees could approve a plan for in-person instruction during its Tuesday meeting.

The re-opening plan, which was drafted last month and discussed is available at https://www.carsoncityschools.com/cms/One.aspx?portalId=801611&pageId=66928046


The district also hosted a public forum to gain input from community members in June.


The district’s document proposes full, in-person instruction five days a week for the 2021-22 school year after the district operated on a hybrid schedule this past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Superintendent Richard Stokes reviewed specific information with the district’s Board of Trustees and the public during the meeting regarding programs and services to be made available to students, families and the community as well as policies and aspects of operations including schedules, communications, health conditions, nutrition services, transportation, human resources and emergency management.


The district is following the U.S. Department of Education’s guidance for Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services through Emergency Directive 022 to update or replace its 2020-21 reopening plans to meet the statutory requirements of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. CCSD also must sub
mit its final recommendations to the Nevada Department of Education and the federal government by July 14.

Other agenda items include:
• Discussion only on proposed changes to CCSD Regulation 517, Graduation Requirements


• Discussion and possible action to designate critical labor shortages in special education and bus driver positions, and to allow acceptance of applications from retired teachers to fill positions in special education and bus drivers, as allowed under NRS 286.523


• Discussion and Possible Action to Approve the Nevada Association of School Boards (NASB) Nominations to be considered for Recognition during the 2021 Annual Conference


The board meets at 7 p.m. in the Robert Crowell Board Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
